I enjoyed my job, worked there for almost 5 years. You just have to make sure you do your research on the FA you will be working for. I was blessed with a wonderful boss, however they are not all like that. The support head office offers you is unlike any company I've worked for! It was excellent and I never felt like I didn't know what to do. My only thing, BOAs need to get paid more, they pretty much run the office. They need to be appreciated.
Points positifs
Work support
Points négatifs
Bad pay

In fact I was scolded for missing a prospecting meeting because I had already committed to coaching two local minor hockey teams in a year end tournament.
Points positifs
Limitless earning potential
Points négatifs
Long hours, management with an iron fist.

Lots of things are promised, not much was delivered. They are way behind with technology and have an old school way of thinking. If you don’t live close to an already established advisors office you’re completely forgotten about and don’t matter. Systems hardly work (technology) so that can be frustrating and it takes way too long to get fixed. Example: If your printer won’t print from the mainframe for months on end it’s apparently not a big deal.Positive is that if you are an established advisor elsewhere they will gladly take you on. They do pay for your licenses so that’s nice too. They have some team building stuff, that’s always good. And most other advisors are nice and helpful.
Points positifs
Friendly employees
Points négatifs
Not much support when you don’t fit into a certain box

If you are looking for a top employer (refer to Fortune Magazine ranked #7) and top spot for clients (JD Power agrees 8yrs in a row) this is it! Great client focus and strong leadership at a firm managing over $1.3Trillion in AUM. Culture and history make this place VERY different vs a bank. Talk to any successful Advisor here and you will learn what differentiates the successful fromunsuccessful. For the benefit of investors, yes it does take a disciplined, hard worker and thoughtful approach to attract clients. If you are interested as a future associate or client spend time learning why its such a great spot. You owe it to yourself and those you care about (existing and future clients).
Points positifs
Support, Mentoring, Size, Reputation

Great pay structure if you are starting as a new broker with salary in thr first 3 yrs to help you grow Very hard to grow when you have no previous experience in investment industry. Coaches are great from your peers to head office supporting you on finding clients, helping meet client needs and investment knowledge
Points positifs
Very good pay if you are investment banking experienced
Points négatifs
Very hard to survive first 3 years

There is little (if any) collaboration to be found at Edward Jones. If you work for the Canadian team, direction and leadership are weak and you can expect to do everything the U.S. team tells you to. Unfortunately, the ideas and initiatives that work sound of the border do not always work in Canada. Moreover, there seems to be quite an opportunistic approach to getting leads on business ($$$), which often makes employees feel as though they're surrounded by vultures.
Points positifs
Salary
Points négatifs
Extremely long hours (mandated by the U.S.)

The financial manager I worked for was Openly judgemental about my personal life and made me feel very u comfortable. The administration Of the office was difficult to work with and the overall culture was caddy.

If a customer makes an investment (which is the only way that you make money, there is no salary) the firm will be paid between 1-3% of the total amount invested. Within a couple of years you will be expected to make $60,000 or more in commissions every month to keep your job. Do the math, it's an insane number for a dying industry. You will receive 40%of that amount, less any taxes and benefits. You will be responsible for everything at the branch level and they will be responsible for nothing. Every Jones broker is fighting to keep their job with the firm. The business model is to use employees as prospecting tools for assets to be invested. When you quit (which you will, eventually, don't kid yourself) the clients are theirs. Not yours. The"diversification rips" that they love to tout are "earned" with a staggering amount production of their customers money going to Jones so that they can reward you with a fund company kickback (no other way to describe it) so that you can then be marketed to by them in some exotic location. Please buy our fund/insurance etc. At tax time each one will cost you a lot. When I finally quit I was on the brink of financial ruin, my health was horrible and my wife was ready to take the kids and leave 5 years later we have finally recovered from the catastrophe that was Edward Jones. If you are a good sales person, find a real company that makes real money that they can pay you for your talents with. Don't work for a company that doesn't care if your family starves to death or not.

As a Business Office Administrator, BOA, you work in a small office branch and report to your FA. Although you are trained to believe that you a valued in Edward Jones, HR only cares about the FA. If the FA makes IIROC violations or other violations, and you report your FA to your HR or compliance department, they will do everything to protect the FA. In the end, you would have only damaged your relationship with the FA, who can have HR fire you easily. There is a high turnover rate for BOAs. Most that stay are older women with no higher education, are scared to speak up for themselves, and need the money to pay the bills. Edward Jones salary increases are non existent practically. They do not increase for inflation every year, except this year where they increased our salary's by 2%. As for annual review increases, it is entirely up to the FA to rate you. There is no Edward Jones standard of what is meeting, exceeding or outstanding performance. It is up to the FA to decide, and even if they decide to give you outstanding the most raise you can receive is 3%. If your branch is profitable, which in Toronto typically requires 30k gross revenue income, then the branch is eligible to profit sharing. Again, it is up to the FA to decide how much if any of that profit is allocated to the BOA. Training is pitiful. You will maybe get 1 day working with an actual BOA. They will make you look at lots and lots of basic slides and answer 5-6 question multiple choice questions. Most of your training will come from calling home office and asking how it is done, and they will - plus...

The main metric of success when you're starting out is door-knocking. If you don't door knock, it is tough to get started. A typical work day at the beginning includes 6 hours of door knocking, and +3 hours of appointments. Then it sways the otherway, 6 hours of appointments and +3 hours of door knocking.

They offer a convenient location across Canada in your community. They offer access to many products but not all products. They would be similar to the banks.

you are starting a business not getting a job. they ease you into it but if you cannot keep up with the physical (days of walking) and have a marketing plan (who you will target) or have an ethnic group that you can work with, then it will not work out. Financial advising is much more about constantly selling as opposed to actual advising. You ultimately have to Kill to eat.
Points positifs
good small business startup process
Points négatifs
long hours, and ultimately on your own'ish

This position requires an individual that is capable of working alone. You will be in an office with only you and the Financial Advisor, and 70% off the times the advisor will be at meetings or looking for prospects.

Unfortunately the competitive nature of the business meant that it didn't work out for me but that is not the fault of the company. Yes I would recommend this company.

This job is not for everyone. You begin your career with going door to door to build up your base of clients. Prospecting is a major portion of your work in the early years. If you do not think you will like this, do not apply. There is only a 20% survival rate amongst FAs. The company is very supportive and they want you to succeed. They do not micromanage you unless you are not doing well. They provide lots of training and you can call any FA in the company for help. They provide incentive trips and bonuses if you do well. They also provide you with your own office with an assistant if you are able to open a certain number of accounts in your first year. They provide health benefits that are ok but they are not as good as those in other industries but if you do well, you will make significant income.
Points positifs
Good supportive culture
Points négatifs
Long hours in the early years
